boscia babe: Sarah Horowitz – The ultimate entrepreneur and mother!

May 10, 2012 at 11:17 am 1 comment

With Mother’s Day just a few days away, we started thinking about Mother’s Day gifts.  What should we get our boscia moms…perhaps perfume? No two moms are a like, so we can’t just get any ol’ perfume! Then we remembered our friend Sarah Horowitz, founder of Sarah Horowitz Parfums, a Westlake Village, CA-based fragrance house.  We visited with Sarah to chat about Mother’s Day and to find out more about her and her own mom!

 Does your family have any Mother’s Day traditions?  My friends and I all had kids within weeks of each other so on Mother’s Day we like to all go to the park together.  But in the morning, my husband and daughters usually make a nice breakfast.  We’re very food centric.  It’s just nice to relax and not have to work!

What are your Top 5 gift picks for mother’s day gifts?

  • Fragrance! Obviously custom blended fragrance! (visit Sarah Horowitz Parfums)
  • Spa gift/manicure/pedicure – but you have to guarantee that you will watch my kids while I enjoy this!
  • If you could give “time” as a gift that’s great – time spent with friends or family over a great meal. I want to enjoy their company.
  • Starbucks gift cards – you can never have too many!
  • Chocolates/flowers – sounds cliché but no one doesn’t ever not smile.  You just feel special.

What’s your favorite part about being a mom?  Seeing their faces in the morning.  It’s the best when I come home and my 3 year old runs to the door as if she hasn’t seen me in 10 years! That feeling is great!

Share a memory of your mother.  My mom went to law school when she was 40 and also graduated at the same time I graduated from college. I loved that because it showed me it’s never too late! If you want it bad enough you can achieve it.  I appreciate that she gave that to me.

My mom also has a saying: “In life there are 2 kinds of paths, one that is paved and one that you need a machete for…” She would always say that I was always a machete kind of girl and that is something that has always stuck with me.

How did your mom influence how you approach being a mother? As far as something tangible, my mom sang me a lullaby to sleep when I was younger, which her mom sang to her and now I sing my own version to my own children.  Besides that I’m very hands on like her. I enjoy cooking for my family and being an active part of their lives.  My mom is the kind of person that would try something once and experiment and would encourage me to do the same I hope to raise my kids to explore and try new things as well, and to be strong, independent girls.

    I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could
    connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
